Kakushinkan Shukokai Karate Dojo’s

 

About us:

WHO SEEKS AFTER IT AND WANTS TO HAVE IT

The name of Karate Dojo’s are often bestowed to the chief instructor by their teacher and will reflect aspects of the instructor’s personality, name, philosophy, and approach to both their own training and teaching. Yamada Sensei (Shukokai World Chief Instructor) gave the name of KAKUSHIN, to myself and my Dojo. The literal translation of KAKUSHIN is “TRUE MIND”. Upon explaining the meaning, Yamada Sensei expressed the following: “it is important to look within for the truth, be honest to yourself, develop honest technique, and to always train to develop”. The final character KAN, denotes a place where people come together in order to practice these principles. Our club is proud of our Japanese heritage as practitioners of a traditional martial art, therefore our badge embraces those aspects.
